Prep the Slaw:
- First, wash and cut the cabbage into smaller chunks before placing it in your food processor. Also, make sure you are using the shredding blade for this step.
- Once you shred the cabbage, remove it from the bowl, wash and dry thoroughly.
- Now, wash the other vegetables before shredding and shred the remaining vegetables. Combine all the vegetables in a large bowl and set it aside.
Make the Dressing:
- After that, in a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lime juice, sugar, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix everything until well combined.
- Finally, add the dressing to the large bowl of shredded vegetables. Use salad spoons or tongs to mix and coat vegetables with dressing. Store coleslaw in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Tips for Your Coleslaw with Vinegar Dressing:
- If you don’t have a food processor, then use a knife and cutting board to julienne and slice your vegetables.
- You can make this dish a few days in advance, however, don’t add dressing to the cabbage until you’re ready to serve.
- You could substitute a natural sweetener in place of the granulated sugar.
